The Rainbow Room is a 24/7 resource center located within the Child Protective Services (CPS) offices where caseworkers can gather new and essential items needed for the children on their caseload whose lives are in crisis. The Rainbow Room in Waco has been in existence for over 20 years. Recently, Partnerships for Children was asked to take over the management of this program from The Junior League of Waco. With over 15 years of experience running the Austin Rainbow Room, where we support over 8,000 children each year, we will now expand our reach to support the children in the Waco community.

We stock everything from toiletries to clothing to car seats. Sometimes, the seemingly smallest items can make the biggest difference in a child’s life.  By donating to the Rainbow Room, you’ll make an immediate and powerful difference in these children’s safety, health, and comfort. Whether it’s a teddy bear or a toothbrush, every item that you donate matters.


We’re in constant need of new items for the children we serve. Our monthly campaign, the Rainbow Room Round-Up, is designed to help us “round up” the items we need to restock. Sign up to receive monthly emails about our needs on our Round-Up Wish List. To schedule a time to drop off donations, contact Marcus at marcus@partnershipsforchildren.org or 512-834-4756.



Spread the joy of helping a child. Host a Rainbow Room donation drive and encourage friends, family, coworkers, or classmates to participate as a team. You can ask for collections around a certain theme (think: “Goods for Goodnight” and collect items needed for bedtime) or even start a collection challenge between different departments in your office. Any drive is a great way to amplify your positive impact in a child’s life. For questions or to schedule a drop-off time, email Marcus.



If you’re unable to donate items or host a drive – you can still play a crucial role in helping children in your community. Your monetary donation will enable us to stock the Rainbow Room with essential supplies.


See the Rainbow Room for yourself – and the hundreds of essential items that help shape the experience of a child in crisis. Contact Marcus or call 512-834-4756 to schedule a tour.
